Tried 'n' True: Stuffed peppers — a lot of work, but worth it

I’ve tried to put off canning this month. Everything has gotten so expensive. These are fun to make with your family or friends. Get together and can enough for everyone. Yes, it’s a lot of work but this winter it’s going to be worth it. This recipe, Mom (Viola Nichols) made 75 to 100 quarts. With seven mouths to feed it took a lot of food. I don’t remember Mom sharing these peppers. She would share all the other canned goods when we had company, but not these stuffed peppers. I hope you enjoy them as much as all five of us kids did. Thanks Mom.
